Are you an athletic woman that has been denied a Brazilian butt lift because the doctor said that you were too thin?
Understandably, many doctors limited to the use of traditional liposuction eliminate this option because their approach is only capable of removing deep fat. Conversely, the use of VASER liposuction allows experts to remove both the deep and superficial layers of fat, a revolutionary technique that few have mastered. With VASER liposuction, we are now able to safely perform a Brazilian Butt Lift for the athletic woman.
Athletic women typically have around 10-20% body fat, and elite athletes retain below 10% body fat. As such, the only fat left on the bodies of these athletic women and elite athletes is superficial. Consequently, traditional liposuction does not have the capacity to harvest from these patients since it is restricted to removing deep fat. However, VASER liposuction can target and remove this once untouchable superficial fat. By using 360-degree liposculpture principles, we can harvest enough fat from the superficial layer to provide a proper Brazilian Butt Lift for athletic women. As a result, even elite athletes that desire a more prominent and harmonious buttock shape are good candidates for this procedure.
Generally, when we perform liposuction on patients who lie within the range of having a normal BMI, the ratio of infiltration to aspiration is 4:1, meaning that four liters of the harvest give us one liter to graft with. With athletic women and elite athletes, this ratio increases to 8:1, meaning that eight liters of the harvest are required for one liter of grafting. Using 360-degree liposculpture is what allows us to obtain adequate fat volumes for grafting on these elite athletes.
Because of this innovative technology, women who were told they were too thin to have a Brazilian Butt Lift may now do just that! Therefore, the use of buttock implants is no longer necessary for the athletic woman. The option of buttock implants is often thrust upon these slimmer women who have low BMIs because doctors traditionally haven’t been able to harvest the candidate’s superficial fat.
Fortunately, with the use of VASER liposuction, even patients with less than 10% body fat can now have a Brazilian Butt Lift with life-changing results. As such, the only remaining reason to get butt implants is if you are hoping for a more “cartoonish” central projection. The implants are placed on the gluteus maximus, giving the buttocks a pop directly in the center. Fat tends not to have the structural integrity to push the buttocks out as distinctly as implants do. However, we still do advise that patients consider a Brazilian Butt Lift over buttock implants.
In summary, the use of VASER liposuction in conjunction with the application of 360-degree liposculpture principles now allows us to perform a Brazilian Butt Lift on even the most athletic of candidates.
What is VASER Liposuction?
VASER liposuction is a procedure that is used to change the contours and shape of the body by removing persistent fat deposits. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It is a specialized ultrasound technology used to break down fat cells by sending out ultrasonic frequency waves.
